  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Butter one 8x8x2- inch glass baking dish.
  2. Whisk milk, cornmeal, and salt in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Bring mixture to a boil, whisking constantly until mixture begins to thicken, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low and cook until the mixture is very thick, stirring frequently, about 20 minutes.
  3. Transfer cornmeal to a large bowl. Stir in corn, green onions, and butter. Add the egg yolks one at a time, stirring after each one.
  4. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold half of the egg white mixture into the warm cornmeal to lighten it; fold in remaining egg whites. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until light, puffed and golden brown, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately.

Excellent recipe. Prepare without the onions and canned corn for a more traditional Spoon Bread.

Very big hit at the holiday party. I added 1/4 cup of sugar to this. This was exactly what we were looking for, will make again as a side.

with the exception of my moms, this is one of the best i've had. I did add sugar because we like it sweet but overall its great and fairly easy to make

This is sitting in our kitchen, 1/2 served but not really consumed... we really didn't enjoy this. Too time consuming (stove watching & stirring) to really accomplish much else except maybe, MA...

this was excellent, for a family that doesn't like corn bread they loved it.

I used 2 cups milk, one cup half and half and one cup vanilla soy milk. This recipe is very good. It's a nice variation to cornbread or a casserole. It has a mild flavor, but is delicious. I...

I made this to go with Rosemary Chicken Stew. This recipe produces a creamier, less grainey texture than most other recipes, which went well with the stew. I thought I had made a double recipe,...
